After the GTX2060 accomplishing GTX1080 performance in non very heavy workloads for a "decent price", Nvidia come back establishing its dominance on the gpu market.

You can find here some reviews:

In few words, this is the GTX2060 counterpart in the Nvidia gpu ladder with no RTX support.
Low power consumption, great 1080p/1440p gaming performances, i would wait after the launch that prices settle if interested.
It goes on par with a GTX1070 or a Vega56 in non very heavy workloads, i mean far far enough for general gaming purposes if looking for a new gpu.
Still cheap second hand Vega56 or GTX1080 are now the best choice, when users slowly upgrade for new Nvidia gpu's.

Once again, meanwhile AMD play paper launch, Nvidia is coming back with some good stuff, took a while but still good stuff.

Ps: Quite surprised to be honest!

Not following much the industry lately, bored, the message about this gpu seems to be overclocking.
If you manage to overclock, it match a stock 1660Ti more or less.
Another cheap gpu dedicated to a decent entry level gaming segment.
Low power consumption, good price, adaptive sync included, fair enough.

Also I added to the previous post the Phoronix Linux benchs!

Little update because i'm being lazy.
There is a small detail about the GTX1660/Ti, the GTX 1660 is slower due primarily to a memory bottleneck, GDDR6 on the Ti against GDDR5 for the GTX1660.
So the memory speed and memory overclock on the GTX1660 is a real game changer, also the GTX1660Ti is a better buy if looking for a longer lasting gpu buy.
The best advice is to get the most basic GTX1660Ti version, the cheapest one can or get a cheap GTX1660 and overclock the ram.
